You would think it would get easier over the years, but no. Miss you so much! I had the best daddy! ❤️

I find that anytime I smell someone smoking a pipe i think of you. Sitting at the table out back reading the paper early in the morning. I loved spending time with you in the morning before the day got started. I miss you.

Willy you would have been 94 today. I miss shareing the great grandchildren with you. You really loved the little ones. See you soon honey.

Hi Sir! Just wanted to drop a note that you are never far from my thoughts! Love you so much!
Posted by Debra Peak on February 20, 2017
Think of you nearly everyday. I wonder some times what you would suggest I should do. I just can't find the words to express what you have meant to me.
Posted by Michael Maynard on January 2, 2017
You are still in my heart and mind. My daily chores and choices that I have to go through brings around the thought of what would Willy do or choose. What direction would he point me in. Thanks for being in my life when you were needed. You did raise me.

Can it be that it has been five years since you left for heaven! There is not a day that goes by that I do not speak to you in my heart. This has been an unusually difficult holiday season. Spending the last December you were on earth WITH you in the hospital and hospice was a wonderful gift from God. So much time to say goodbye and yet it was not enough. I know we are designed to pass through this life. Passing through life with you as a father was a great time ... you were such a Huck Finn - you could make any task FUN.
I look at my grandchildren and see glimpses of you and your sweet mother - thanks for the DNA!

Happy Birthday! Still missing your guidance and encouraging words,

This has always been one of the happiest days of my life.... The day you were born. It is also the day we laid you to rest ... It is now bittersweet. I know no one lives forever but these last years without you have been tough. I long to hear your voice and feel your loving hugs. You, my sweet daddy, are part of my very first memories on this earth and you will be one of the people I long to see the most in heaven. This past year has been life altering for me & everyday I missed the fact that I could not call you. I like to think that when I pray to God, you too can hear my prayers & God assigns you to be my guardian angel. In eight days I celebrate the birth of my sweet Buster. I like knowing that the Febuary birthday boys will celebrate together this year. I hear your voice, "never give up". So I will work hard and push on until we meet again. Much love to the man who taught me how to have a backbone in this life and to know "the game is not over until I win".  Happy Birthday, Daddy! ❤️

Death changes everything! Time changes nothing.... I still miss the sound of your voice, the wisdom in your advice, the stories of your life and just being in your presence. So No, time changes nothing, I miss you as much today as I did the day you died.I just miss you.

Life is tough without you. Your wisdom and calming voice had a way to touch my soul from my birth. Miss you daddy, everyday!
Posted by Michael Maynard on February 21, 2015
I thank the Lord every day that my mother met you and brought you into my life. As always late again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! We all miss your guidance in our lives.

Happy Birthday, Willie! I think about you so often - it surprises me, frankly, how often you pop into my thoughts. Thinking about you and remembering the laughs we shared always leaves me with a feeling of warmth and peacefulness. You are deeply missed and remembered with such love and gratitude.

Karney. That was the pet name you had for me. The name was more than a nickname, it was a term of endearment. When I heard you say this name, I always knew you had something special to say to me. I would love nothing more than to hear you call my name one more time. You not only gave me love, you gave me the benefit of your wisdom, compassion and life lessons. Then, it was as if you could step into my shoes and feel my pain, joy or sorrow. There is not an hour in a day that I do not miss you. Happy Third Birthday In Heaven!

Another year gone by, but around this time of year my thoughts return to what you said to me as I finally made it to Tucson. I love you grandpa.
Posted by Michael Maynard on January 1, 2015
It has been three years and you are still in our conversations and our thoughts. Still missing you.

Being away from home and missed my folks was a very heavy burden to carry, but I want to thank God for a wonderful family whom have devoted their life to help others. I was one of the few lucky one, as a foreign student (Marshallese), end up with a very wonderful family.
With others, we were welcomed in their home as sons. There is always foods on the table for us all times. There are times we went shopping in their own expenses. Smiles on their face all the times. I never seen Mr. and Mrs. William Clark anger faces. I really like to thank Kimberly Clark caused I know in my heart that without her, life for us may be impossible. Our spring breaks were awesome. 
I was searching the Clarks family on the internet and found out the Mr. William Clark was passed away.  Am very sorry that it happen this way, but I know that he is in a place there will be no sorrow. He is with God. He is with God in a place where David mention in PSALM 23. You will deeply missed, but for Virgin and Kimberly, THANK YOU. I know it may be difficult both of you and the family, but GOD is not away from us. He is on our side even though we have lost one, he is there for us. Once again, THANK YOU and I want to give special thanks to GOD for being a just wonderful family.

Happy Birthday. I wish I could say this to you in person. I wish I could buy you a gift and watch you blow out your candles. I wish I could hear your voice say "you do good work".at least I have you in my heart and my memories. Love you.

Remembering fondly a man of great heart and character....and sense of humor. No telling what he, Mel and Paul have been tinkering with along those golden streets! Looking forward to seeing their handiwork someday. In the meantime, I enjoy seeing Carl Clark in the lives and hearts of his children, grandchildren and great grands!

Survived another New Year's Day with a lifetime of memories. I have volumes of photos, videos yet I am still unable to pull them out and look at them. Then out of nowhere, Kimberly finds a photo that warms my heart and uplifts my spirits. Amazing how just the right photo at the right time can bring comfort. I will continually thank God for the wonderful month of Dec.2011 when HE allowed so much time before we had to say good-bye on January 1, 2012.

I really miss you honey, I feel so alone, I don't know what I would do without Jesus in my life. God has you in his arms & I have you in my heart.
Posted by Debra Peak on February 21, 2013
It's been a year and I've missed you everyday of it.
I can still hear you giving encouragement and advise. So glad I had you in this life to guide me. Looking foreward to your guidance in the next. Love you!

Remembering a fun and fine man who was like a daddy to many...and who was an awesome Dad to his equally awesome daughters. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, Ladies! I'm celebrating "Daddy
Clark" today, too.
Posted by John C Schweer on February 20, 2013
I wish mine and Brandi's kids, his great grandchildren had been able to see him more often, what little time they shared i feel was a blessing to them..............What can you say about the perfect role model, other than to know him is to love him. Anyone who was lucky enough to have him touch their lives was surely a better person for it
Posted by Shandylinn DeVita on February 20, 2013
Happy Birthday to one of the greatest men who ever lived. We all miss you very much.
Posted by Karen Clark-Faulkenberry on January 4, 2013
I just keep reminding myself how lucky I was to have such a wonderful dad to miss as much as I do. ♥ Some days I am more successful at being positive than others. This past week has not been full of success --- I have really missed my dad! As dad would say, "Give yourself a 20 minute pity party then get busy living."  Party is over and focusing on a better 2013.

I miss my "Pop''. He always said, To look a person in the eye and give them a firm handshake. I believe when he entered heaven and saw Jesus, that is what he did. Will you be with my'"Pop"when you die? Believing in Jesus Christ is the ticket there. Love you!
Posted by Shandylinn DeVita on January 2, 2013
I missed so many years of being able to spend with you and Grandma but I am so glad you got to meet my husband and my son before you left. I miss being able to talk to you.

A year ago we spent Christmas at Hospice. What a blessing to have that precious time with a man that I will miss every day until I see him again in heaven. Thank you God for the best Daddy in the world!
Posted by Kathy Kennedy on February 20, 2012
Happy Birthday, Bill! I wish I could have made it to AZ to be with Karen, Virginia, and all of the family for the memorial service today. You are all in my thoughts. Celebrate the life that had such a remarkable impact on so many others. Honor his memory by showing each other love and compassion. Give Tillie a big hug and a scratch behind the ears for me. :-)

Willy - our elder, our chieftan, our patriarch. My hero, my role model, my idol. I just hope you knew how much I thought of you, and always will. I hope you somehow know now how often I think of you, and always will.

Mr Clark was the worker of God's Vineyard in this world. His Work of Love has shown to the world and me the Love of My Lord and My God, Jesus Christ. Now, this worker of God finished his day of labor. He was brought Home by His Master to receive the Crown of Glory and rest in His Heavenly Father's Bosom. Mr Clark, a job well done! I shall see you soon.
Posted by Richard Verble on January 23, 2012
Mr. Clark was not only a true friend but a mentor for me. I will never be able to be the man he was but will never stop trying. I will always remember the rock gathering trips with him and Kim. Your memory will always be with me. Im going to miss you my friend!

What can I say about my Grandpa Willy that hasn't been said? He was just the most amazing man with the most generous spirit and infectious joy. He was always so positive and encouraging. He is an outstanding example of what a man should be. I am so thankful he came into Grandma's life. I miss him every day and probably will for the rest of my time on earth.
Posted by Pam Meyer on January 18, 2012
One of my Dad's favorite verses:James1:2-3 Consider it pure JOY, my brothers.whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.I will miss my very loving, encouraging and courageous Dad. His hope was that his family, friends and all he met, would know the JESUS he now is at home with!
Posted by Rita Knight on January 16, 2012
Mr. Clark was a huge presence in my life. He showed myself as well as my brothers and sister that a male role model didnt have to be tough and remote. I always envied Kim for that, but Mr. Clark had time for all of us !! Im going to miss him.

I remember flooring the Gator down in Arizona with Grandpa Willy. I wish I could have gotten to know him better. Thank you for serving our country and being a very inspirational man. I'll never forget you.
Posted by Emma Faulkenberry on January 7, 2012
